Installing CWM Recovery Or TWRP Recovery on Xolo Q80o

Hey Guys, After a long wait finally I have finally ported a working CWM recovery for Xolo q800.

(note : This Procedure is not mine, I cannot assure this will work on your device, I have successfully installed this CWM on my device with this method which i found on http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2200343, All credit goes to developer of this Post for letting us know the Procedure)
First Things to Know,
1) Xolo Q800 can be un-bricked with tool named SP FLASH TOOL
so don't worry if you are facing a boot-loop (Your phone is freezing on Xolo Logo)
2) There is no other method than installing CWM (or TWRP) Recovery to Root your phone (to give phone Superuser Access)
3) There are Three Other Same Phone Models in other Countries Known as Gionee Dream D1, AllView p5 Quad and Fly IQ446 (their ROM's could work on this phone as their Hardwares are same.

Install CWM Recovery (or TWRP Recovery)
(do at your own risk, I am not responsible if your device bricked or exploded or get any kind of damage :P)
(note: Procedure to install CWM Recovery and TWRP recovery are almost same, it's upto you which one you wants)
